cleaning Head and valve stems?

well i pulled my ported and polished head from my old engine and should get my gaskets in the mail tomorrow so my project is getting closer to completion. i am wondering if any of you have ever cleaned your head?

every thing inside the head seems fine but on the bottom the valve stems seem a bit dirty.. like carbon build up dirty.. and from looking at the helms it says to oil everything down/clean the head before replacing.

what kind of oil do i use to clean the cam gear and valve spring area and what can i use to clean the bottom of the stems??

Thanks for the help
